Las Vegas' Bryce Menzies took to the starting line in the opening round of the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series at Firebird International Raceway in Chandler, Arizona, and showed that the Firebird wasn't the only set of wings present that day. Red Bull has teamed with Menzies Motorsports and their No. 70 Trophy Truck now has its own set of wings. And they appeared to work just fine thank you, as Menzies won the first short course race of 2011in convincing fashion.

"I like racing Firebird, the track is fun, and it was a great start to the short course year with a win. With all the new sponsors we have all the right tools and support to give all our race trucks - wings!" said the K&N sponsored Menzies.

Menzies is entering his fourth year of racing with the Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series (LOORRS) and with the Championship Off-Road Racing series (CORR). In 2009 he completed the season with a fifth place finish in the Unlimited-2 division of LOORRS. For 2011 the team has rededicated themselves with an all out effort to win more championships. Cory Beacham is the new GM at Menzies Motorsports. With over ten years of racing experience Beacham was hired by Menzies Motorsports in January of this year.
The Menzies team has a new look and new GM with Cory Beacham, a combination they believe will win them a championship or two in 2011.

"I am really excited to be part of a Team that has a chance to win any race we enter," expressed Beacham. "I can't wait to go back East for some short course racing. I have been out of the short course racing scene for two years, and I am very happy to be involved with it again, and with such a great team."

Before the win at Firebird, Menzies Motorsports sporting their new look, brought their wings to Laughlin, Nevada. For the 17th year Laughlin held the annual SCORE Laughlin Desert challenge, and even though the winds reached up to 30mph gusts, the stands remained full with fans ready for the action. And when the dust settled it was Menzies taking the win.

"We went into this year with a fresh start, and a new look, and so far it has been working out for us," remarked Beacham. "Winning Laughlin was a great confidence booster and gave the team that much more drive to know that we have the tools to do what it takes to win a couple championships this year."

"Our goals this year is to win championships and the entire Menzies team has been working extremely hard to make this happen. Without their hard work we wouldn't be where we are. I'm feeling great about where we are now, and I am looking forward to what this year of racing is going to bring us."

Next up for Menzies Motorsports is the Baja 500, and they are looking good there with a top-12 draw. The team's next LOORRS race is in Surprise, Arizona. After that they start the Texas Off-Road Championship (TORC) series, and Beacham adds, "I'm looking forward to the new experience it will bring."
